Yes Steven, I can remember Charles Muir quite well.
When I was a young man, Charlie was a member of the 1st Kirkwall Coy. Boys Brigade also. He eventually reached the rank of Lieutenant,and when on parade was nearly always with the Colour Party.
Although a deal older than myself,I have good memories of Charlie as a fine man and an upright citizen of Kirkwall.
